WHAT IS AN APPLICATION SECURITY ASSESSMENT?
Application security testing is the process of identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in traditional web applications. Exploitation can allow, amongst other things, privilege escalation, access to sensitive and personal user information (PII), website defacement or disruption/denial of service.
WHY CONDUCT AN APPLICATION ASSESSMENT?
An Application can provide an easily accessible and identifiable, public presence to your organisation. However, a security issue which is exploited within this public face of your organisation can result in detrimental impacts to your reputation, confidential information disclosed, and your accounts or customers being compromised.
Ensuring that your applications are secured against a wide array of threats can be a necessary part of a number of compliance standards as well as a best practice approach for protecting your organisation.
As part of our approach, our Penetration Testers use a combination of the most effective automated tools and manual exploitation techniques to identify vulnerabilities across your applications. Our extensive reports provide a thorough assessment of each vulnerability and provide business context alongside each finding.
This is supplemented by technical and non-technical descriptions including evidence of exploitation to assist in prompt remediation activities and provide a thorough understanding of each issue.
A Web Application testing assessment and report will allow your business to:
- Receive assurance around the security posture of any web application.
- Make ongoing improvements to a web application’s security via specialist support, advice and consultancy.
- Adhere to regulatory bodies who require Web Application Testing to be performed.
- Gain access to a dedicated team of specialist CREST Registered penetration testers who use the latest tools and techniques to accurately assess and identify emerging threats.
